Don't you believe it's amazing that most people are not doing what they actually want to do with their time? Is it because people don't bother to plan, and then never take action? If this is currently you, then this short article will show you 3 simple ways you can start to better manage your time and effort using desktop computer calendars.
By repeating them you 'introduce' them into your own daily activities. Always use your Free Mac Blotter Calendar to your advantage. After all, these calendars are here to help you to better manage Your time and effort!
So then, using a calendar, how can you start to 'super manage' your time?
1: The first approach is to make notes about future programs and meetings right onto your desk schedule. (You can also accomplish this if you have a desktop calendar on your PC or Mac, or if you have a business diary or business calendar). The key is, when you know a specific date for a project, to write it down immediately.
This is a good habit to fall into, and the quickest way to learn to get this done habit is by doing it often, perhaps for 30 days (or longer). It'll then become a normal part of your daily preparing or every week planning procedure.
2: Another way to better manage your time is to simply 'plan the night prior to.' This really is another routine that will feel strange until mastered, till it's a part of your daily planning process. Pick a specific time every day and resolve to do the next times planning when that time plants up.
The great thing about this is that it lets your subconscious thoughts turn on the projects you've written down, during the night. Sometimes you'll get up in the morning and know exactly how to approach or work through an otherwise challenging goal. You'll find it really helps to give yourself some 'mental' preparing space.
3: The third way to use a desktop calendar effectively is by creating in a deadline. Write the deadline onto the calendar alone. By having a deadline you tend to force you to ultimately get things done quicker, and put a specific degree of urgency on projects.
You know this works well - think about if you need to catch your flight somewhere. You know you have to be in the airport at a certain time - or you'll skip your airline flight. So you start thinking about everything you need to do, and what challenges you might be confronted with on the way.
Having a due date gives you an urgency and pushes you to get the goal or task done in the allotted time.
The activities above are habits which will feel rather uncomfortable in the beginning. Remember, everything in hard prior to it's easy. Changing routines takes some real practice to get correct. The best way is by repeating the actions each day for a month!
